Haul | NudeStix Lip + Cheek Pencil5:38 AM
New year, new layout, new header and new typography font. Ditched the expensive Jasmine Dowling font for something simpler. Decided to add a little color to my monochrome blog. Pastel pink is my 3rd fave color so my dear friends, don't go weird on me about this okay? I'm still the same (boring) person.
To those who know me really well will be surprised by that title. What? Tqa? Makeup? NudeStix? What is that, is that her new Xbox joystick?
It's a bit embarrassing for me to say that my friends labeled me as an 'otaku' because of my obsession with video games, staying at home and seldom talk to people or socialising outside of my room. What an embarrassing 25 year old goat!
Back to the main topic, yes it's about a lip and cheek pencil. I'll use every knowledge about lip pencil that I have in my clogged up brain to blog about this.
While my sister (Yaya) was busy looking for the makeup toolbox she wanted at Sunway's Sephora, I was glued to this one small section between Guerlain and Marc Jacobs called NudeStix. I was impressed that so little pencils can be use for a lot of features like lips, eyes and face such as concealer, highlighter, bronzer, primer and corrector. Even the sharpener and brushes comes with the same design that can be fit in that cute tin case. Isn't that wonderful?
Don't say I didn't warn you! LOL
"I think Pixi and Tamed looks good on your skin." - Yaya
But sadly both were sold out. Then my sister tested all the colors on the back of her hand and she fished out the matte black tin case with 'Whisper' label on it. I trusted her because, well if I didn't trust someone with a Makeup Artist Certificate hanging on her wall then I must be crazy.
"I got this." she said then disappeared in a sea of girls queued to pay.
Mind you, my sister never buys me makeup. Period! No, she's not a bad sister but she knows I don't like makeup and even if she does offers to buy me something, I will say "no thanks.." and most of the times I'll just wait for her outside until she finishes.
But somehow when Yaya offered to buy me this I was tongue-tied. My mouth wants to say 'no' because it was so expensive but my heart was like "take it! Bila lagi nak beli lipstick ni?!"
Okay I was kidding, that last part was not my heart talking but 'syaitan nirojim' yang cakap.
So yeah that's how I ended up with this in my bag everywhere I go now. Didn't forget to give my sister a kiss before leaving Sephora because she works really hard and I hate people wasting money on me.
"We're all born with our own unique look, so why cover it up with tons of makeup? Go nude but better." - Ally & Taylor.
Super pigmented even if you dab it instead of swab it. I wore it to a coffee shop and it left zero lipstick stain on the coffee cup.
It was made to create that nude ready-to-go look but without trying too hard. Suitable for girls on the move because you can just grab a few sticks and you're done.
I think this will not be my last items from NudeStix because I already got my eyes on a few stuff owned by Ally & Taylor. So, that's all for this post. Too lazy to write a long review. Tulis panjang-panjang pun belum tentu orang nak baca. Another thing I learn for being in this blogging world for almost 10 years, people don't like to read long blog post.
Anyway, look forward for my upcoming blog posts including Seoul Day 3 in Myeongdong, Unboxing 2 gadgets and NARS Haul.
Thank You for reading. Much love, L.
